Trigger Warning

In Latino culture, it is customary to celebrate a girl's transition into womanhood when she turns 15 years old. Keeping that tradition in mind, Austin-based nonprofit Latinitas is proudly celebrating its 15th anniversary with a quinceañera-themed gala where they will honor the people that have helped Latinitas reach this point, including Producer/Vice President at Troublemaker Studios Elizabeth Avellan; former Austin City Council Member Mike Martinez; Senior Vice President of Univision LA – ATX Luis Patino and his wife Alina; and more. The Latinitas Quinceañera Gala presented by Dell will be a modern, chic twist on the Latin American tradition, featuring a choreographed dance, fine photography with a transformation theme for sale, a live and silent auction, tequila tastings and signature cocktails, and cuisine from Mexico’s interior. The Peligrosa All-Star DJs will be performing that night, as well as Stephanie Bergara – lead singer of Selena-cover band Bidi Bidi Banda – and Mayor Steve Adler will be stopping by to say a few words. Colorful cocktail attire and quinceañera dresses are encouraged!
